Project Explorer is an add-in to Microsoft Developer Studio. It has been tested with Version VC++ 6 and Service Pack 3.
It adds the ability to launch windows explorer in the directory of the currently
active project. Although only a very simple ability, it is one that is very handy and I use all the time.
